Great for picnicking and birdwatching, Starrs Creek picnic area in Coorabakh National Park also offers an elevated boardwalk that opens up the rainforest on an easy walk.

Picnic areas
What to
Drinking water, hat, sunscreen

Starrs Creek picnic area is a terrific spot to settle down and enjoy the natural splendour of the rainforest, with light filtering through the canopy into a cool clearing. Bring a packed lunch and find a place to picnic right near the crystal clear perfection of the creek; picnic tables make this a convenient spot for families, though everybody will appreciate the quiet solitude of pristine nature.

It’s easy to while away an entire day relaxing in the shade here, reading a book or using binoculars for birdwatching (lyrebirds are common in the area). But Starrs Creek picnic area is also the access point to a beautiful elevated boardwalk, perfect for walking with children and fully wheelchair-accessible.

This easy 400m stroll threads through unusual palms and other subtropical species popular with the local animals, some of them threatened. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for spotted-tailed quoll, for example. For a scenic view of the area be sure to visit nearby Flat Rock lookout.
